How to find an Internship in Beijing
Looking for an internship in Beijing, any time of the year, any period of time is possible, although companies usually prefer a minimum of 1 month. Using an internship placement program to find an internship will make things easier because you will be supported throughout the application process. The length of your stay is up to you, but be sure to consider that you need time to settle in, get to know the city, and learn how to get around. In general, it is best to start looking for internships at least 3 months in advance to allow time to apply for visas, book tickets, learn more about the future company, and arrange housing.
Visa for Beijing Internship
While the F visa is the best option for an internship in China, a tourist visa (or L visa) can be used as an internship option for 1 month or less (this is the maximum length of stay for an L visa). The maximum length of stay varies from 30 days to 6 months.
When applying for a visa, you will be asked to choose single, double or multiple entry visa. Single-entry visas do not allow travel out of the country and back, double-entry visas allow two entries in the country, and multiple-entry visas allow unrestricted travel. The price increases depending on the number of entries. To enter China, you must apply for a visa before leaving the country, and no visas are sent at the airport or the border. To get a visa, you can ask a travel agent to do it for you, or you can go directly to the Chinese Embassy. It is important to note that when applying for a Chinese visa, there is a possibility that you may not get the visa you are asking for. Overstaying in China without a valid visa is prohibited by Chinese law and can result in expensive fines and even jail time.
